Our Mission

At Lifetime Learning Academy, we believe that every student can succeed academically. We value each student as an individual, and recognize that each has his or her own unique learning style and strengths. Accordingly, we personalize our teaching through direct, differentiated, one-on-one instruction. We strive to be the “good academic coach” who motivates, teaches, and gently persuades/pushes each student to practice and improve each day. We focus on building strong long-term fundamentals, as well as making good grades on the next quiz and homework assignment.

By increasing understanding and skills, we help students of all ages and abilities grow in knowledge and confidence for a lifetime of learning and leadership.
